Functioning on the model of “housing for all”, Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) is set to provide housing units to middle income group, economically weaker section, and lower income group. The scheme was launched on June 25, 2015 by our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As a part of this scheme, credit linked subsidy will be offered by the agencies to the people willing to take home loan.

renovation to existing house or for any new construction. Certainly, the interest subsidy benefits are
set to be offered over the principal outstanding amount. The accessibility and interest subsidy

would have a carpet area of 30 sqmt; though, the size of the house may vary as per the guidelines
provided by state government.
